    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

    Southwest Stuffed Spaghetti Squash A good friend of mine, Eileen, rarely eats meat. She started this way of eating after her daughter became a Pescatarian. Someone who is a Pescatarian does not eat meant but does eat fish. Well anyways, she is a huge “foodie” just as I am. We are always looking for new recipes and trying them out. Do you have any idea how hard it is to do that with someone that doesn’t eat meat? Ha Ha!! I found a recipe recently that sounded really good and reminded me of both Eileen and her daughter. I figured I would give it a try as Tom is always…

    Shrimp Scampi Risotto

    Two Southern Sweeties Shrimp Scampi Risotto This recipe was originally published on Two Southern Sweeties on December 5, 2012 Looking for something delicious, easy and warming for dinner tonight? Well here it is…..Shrimp Scampi Risotto!! Now don’t freak out. I know many people hear the word “risotto” and think it is difficult to make. I promise, it’s not at all. It does require you to be an active participant however, so this is not a good idea for dinner parties. For those of you that don’t know, risotto is made with Arborio rice. This can be found in most any grocery store and even at Target. Feel free to add…

    Best Roast Beef Ever

    Two Southern Sweeties Best Roast Beef Ever When I was growing up, my Mama used to make a nice roast beef dinner at least once a month. Now I’m not talking a pot roast, I’m talking about a delicious, medium-rare roast beef. She would make mashed potatoes and a delicious au jus to go with the beef. Of course, there was always either a salad or some other vegetable served with it, however, I was never a huge veggie person when I was younger. The prize of the dinner was this mouthwatering roast! Over the years, this recipe has completely intimidated me! I don’t think that I have ever actually…

    Senior & Not So Senior Discounts

    Senior & Not So Senior Discounts In this day and age when the price of EVERYTHING seems to be on the rise, it’s always nice to be able to get a little bit of a break. As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy’s recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that seniors over age 55 …get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your senior discount.) This incident prompted me to do some research,…
